RISARC Consulting LLC and its charitable arm CCGI Foundation will showcase new couture lines from leading fashion designers during the Fifth Annual CCGI Celebrity Golf, Champions of Champions II fight night and Charity Event in Montego Bay, Jamaica on Friday, June 26th.

For the first time ever, fashion meets fight night as top fashion show producer and runway instructor Michael Maddox teams up with the CCGI Foundation to showcase collections from fashion lines Alexander McQueen, Parasuco, House of Howe, Thomas Wylde, Sterling Capricio, Dena Burton, and John Varvatos. The fashion show will cap off a week of sporting and multi-cultural events organized to donate computers and create technology learning centers for economically challenged countries such as Jamaica.

This year marks the fifth anniversary of the annual CCGI charity event and the first to incorporate a fashion show. Taking place on a specially designed runway during the Event's Champions of Champions II Muay Thai fight night, the showcase will mark the first time that a fashion runway has been specially designed and incorporated during a sporting event.

Jamaican and International models will don some of the industry's hottest designs from never before seen collections, as the world's most anticipated Muay Thai match-ups take place. The fight features 10 world titles and international fighters from across the globe representing 12 countries.

Commenting on the introduction of fashion to the week's sporting and cultural lineup CCGI Founder and President of CCGI and RISARC Foundation Richard Stephenson commented, "We are excited to be able to showcase some of the world's greatest fashion as part of the week's events. Fashion expert Michael Maddox has organized a great roster of "adjective" fashion brands." The fashion showcase during the Champions of Champions II Muay Thai fight night adds to a week of events which includes Golf Championships, comedy night hosted by comedian Cedric "the Entertainer," and an exclusive black tie gala.

For Michael Maddox, his involvement with fashion for charitable foundations includes past work with the Invisible Children's Foundation to support children in Uganda, as well as work with the Los Angeles based charity "Help Me Help You" which raises money for single parents and inner city youth. Maddox is a leading fashion show producer, scout, and runway expert who has appeared on MTV's Made and will be featured on Project Runway's upcoming 2009 season.

His past work includes partnerships with Victoria's Secret Super Model Marisa Miller, Super Models Tyson Beckford, Omahyra Mota, and Anthony Gallo. Maddox's celebrity clientele ranges from Lisa Marie Presley to Kirstie Alley. Along with CCGI, Maddox has partnered with designers such as Iceberg, Sean John, Guess, Betsey Johnson, Donna Karen, DKNY, and Richard Tyler. Maddox is also partnered with top modeling agencies around the world such as, LA Models, Wilhelmina, IMG NY, Vison, Click, Ford Models, and many more.
